Was down in MD visiting friends this weekend and after making a quick stop at American Dream on Friday on the ride down (threw a couple pictures on FB), I started the ride back with a stop at American

I was at the park on that day, too. It was actually my first visit, and I couldn't have picked a better day to experience the desolation that is Six Flags America on a November Sunday. There's no way

I love the look of this coaster. Also the skull's facelift is great. They filled in the mouth and the eyes. They also updated the colors on the facade. It looks great and looks like a real mountain that just happened to form a skulls face naturally. The whole ride actually blends in well with the area which is what I had hoped for.

The last piece of track was installed on Apocalypse at Six Flags America today! I just happened to be standing there right in front of the ride while they were bolting together the final piece of track! It was a good day!

 

Here are a few pics!

A panoramic shot of the whole ride all put together. Sorry about the choppy panorama. I'm still learning how to use that feature!

It looks REALLY GOOD! I was surprised at how well it fits into the space. It's very pretty now too. Looks so much better than it did at SFGA.The fresh paint and and new colors really give it a dramatic look. I am actually looking forward to riding it now. I wasn't too excited about it before I saw it today.

Now let's hope that the park makes up for a decade's worth of no significant additions & follows up with another new ride next season.They still need a replacement for two face after all & were supposed to get a coaster a couple years back for the "tween" market after all.

I haven't been following this project and I don't know what page all the details are on... Is this a regular sitdown coaster? Because I could be wrong but it's been a while since B&M built one of those!

No. It's a stand-up coaster, specifically Iron Wolf from Six flags Great America (B&M's first coaster as a new company), relocated.

I don't know if this has been answered or not, but are they going to put a roof over the station?

 

Yes there will be a roof over the station. The station will probably be the highest station at the park (typical B&M style) where you have to climb steps to get the platform.

 

The trains are ready from what I've heard too. I assume that park is getting all the electrical together and construction of the station will be in full swing, and landscaping and themeing around testing. The park has plenty of time to have this ride ready for opening. Good Job SFA!!!!!!

Sorry for double post but P.S. Wasn't this coaster in Richie Rich that's a cool random fact they can tell people. They now have two coasters that have been in movies. Apocalypse in Richie Rich and Wild One in Game Change.

I agree! But I will admit I like they have taken the time to get their park back into some sort of good shape. Compared to years ago this park has did a 180 degree. Now, they have their self together lets get some new rides in!!

Exactly there is no way the park would survive by adding new capital when their operations and guest service was poor. They had to get that in order first. Good service sells and keeps guest coming back and never gets old. Rides and their popularity sometimes do!

I thought the service was pretty good on Sunday when I was there. The ride ops weren't exactly "speedy" but they were polite and had good guest interaction.

 

I do find it a bit funny that this is the first coaster in 10 years, and it's a 20 year old coaster.
